There are many lone workers and employers who could benefit from using Identicom. In particular those deemed to be at risk of abuse from those they interface with on a regular basis.
More and more workers are finding themselves day in, day out on the receiving end of verbal or even physical abuse. Research has shown many times over that being the recipient of such abuse is damaging to a persons well being and state of mind. Helping prevent such abuse and capturing evidence of such incidences has until now been extremely difficult. Introducing Identicom, the world's first solution specifically aimed at helping professional lone workers achieve piece of mind and help their employer improve the care and support they can provide to their workforce and address their legal and moral duty of care.
Identicom helps address the issues faced by lone working individuals and is simple to use, extremely effective and most importantly is always there for the worker.
Deliberately designed to look and feel like a normal identity (ID) cardholder, you are assured that Identicom is always with the worker and within immediate reach should an issue arise. Identicom uses mobile phone technology but unlike a phone can be activated in a covert fashion thereby ensuring no suspicion is raised. Trying to use a mobile phone to raise an alarm can often exacerbate an already difficult situation and may even be the spark that creates a flashpoint.
Once activated Identicom can open a voice call to a dedicated and responsible third party point where the incident can be managed, recorded*, listened to and if necessary escalated with an immediate response.
Identicom can also trigger text messages to automatically be sent to colleagues directly. Like ID, Identicom is worn either in landscape or portrait mode on a lanyard or by using a label clip. This ensures that irrespective of whether a worker has removed their coat or jacket and put their bag down, Identicom is still with them at all times. The lanyard hides a clever 'rip alarm', should Identicom be forcibly removed from the wearer then an alarm is automatically triggered.
Identicom will accept any industry sized ID card and can therefore be easily introduced into an organization. If staff are already accustomed to carrying an ID card for proof of identity or for access around their working environment then Identicom causes no concerns and is unlikely to be forgotten.
